Those are so cute! I like them even better than the Pop! dolls. Same company I see though.

When Fiona first donned her Marigolds in 2001, some of the later Potter stories had not yet been published, so she wouldn’t have known about Mrs Dursley’s childhood jealousy of her witch sister and how she’d even written to Hogwarts asking them to admit her.

‘We didn’t know that story yet, but funnily enough,’ says Fiona, suddenly animated and raising her voice, ‘it coincided exactly with my feeling which was that I wanted to be a witch!’ she adds laughing.

‘I used to hope and hope that I would be [a witch]. In some of the scenes I remember playing the fear, the terror of letters arriving, the hatred of it. It was absolutely the hatred of envy. It really was. And I had it myself because I wanted to be in Hogwarts. I was very envious of all the witchcraft people. But that’s what the whole thing is built on. There should be another book about Mrs Dursley and how one day she went to a school called Hogwarts and found her redemption,’ she jokes. At least, I think she’s joking…

That would have been awesome if Aunt Petunia was a witch.

on her defense of the dursleys:


“i was always very pro the durlseys, i liked who they were, because they’re just trying to do well in life. I think a lot of children have that experience of their parents who they find boring, old-fashioned, nerdy. Actually the poor old dursleys were just trying to get on with it.”

she does, however, acknowledge that vernon and petunia weren’t without their faults.

“maybe they were slightly trying to top their neighbours, maybe there was a bit of that, certainly petunia was,” she chuckles. “but that would be an act of imagination, but just a limited imagination, and maybe not a generous imagination. Generosity is the thing the kids learn when they get to the school, so they expand into another sphere. And all they do is they expand their minds, really is what they’re doing, magic is expansion, mind expansion.”

on her love of costars richard griffiths (vernon) and harry melling (dudley):

“i’m obviously very sorry about richard... I was in america and i actually was desolate for days after he was gone because we had had the most wonderful time together here.”

“he would regale us with the most marvelous stories, he was a brilliant storyteller and very often the camera could not go to action because richard was finishing a story,” she laughs. “people were sort of looking at watches and then richard would say ‘and then what happened…’.”

“he also had the most beautiful handwriting of anybody i’ve ever met. He was trained in calligraphy so his hand-written notes were always beautifully done.”

“harry melling is absolutely like a plant that i feel we watered,” she says. “when he was 10 he was one of the most talented young actors of that group. He really was the most ambitious – the others were enjoying it but harry melling really wanted to be an actor, and his uncle was an actor, and he took it very seriously.”

“he actually auditioned for the national youth theatre while here,” she explains, “and he missed his audition because he was filming so i rang up the national youth theatre and said the reason why this young man is not auditioning for you is because he’s filming and they very kindly set another date.”

“i remember this because we practiced it. He did caliban – all the infections that the sun sucks up – and we rehearsed it here in the gaps and he took off. He later went to drama school and then played my son in mother courage at the national theatre and by then had become this swan of a man. He’s beautiful, talented and i’ve just seen him in the west end being utterly brilliant in hand to god. He was just astonishing in it. I’m very proud of him.”

shaw also revealed a bit of movie magic, in a scene from harry potter and the sorcerer's stone where petunia had to deal with a kitchen full of owls:

“but the scene i keep on referring to is in the kitchen, when the owls wouldn’t look at me. They just wouldn’t look at me, they kept on turning their heads right around like that,” she explains, twisting her neck as far as possible, “like something out of the exorcist because they kept on looking at the camera.”

“[the crew] hung some mice on my apron so that the owls got absolutely fixated on my apron and looked at me,” she explains, “and i thought, 'there’s something absolutely brilliant about the telling of storytelling, that people go to endless trouble to make something seem like something.' and this set was full of real endeavour by people who were always good humoured, working very hard, a lot of them.”

Yup, you have the option to play 4 of the characters so either Harry, Ron, Hermione or Neville (not sure why him and not Ginny). It looks fun though plus I'm into board games these days.
